Little Red sets off to visit her auntie who is poorly. She walks under the giraffes, over the sleepy crocodiles, past the enormous elephants and the chattering monkeys. Then a Very Hungry Lion approaches Little Red, wanting to gobble her up. But despite all the cunning plans by Lion, Little Red outsmarts him and soon has him saying sorry and eating doughnuts instead. A classic fairy tale with a twist by the bestselling Alex T. Smith.

Review:

Praise for "Home" by Alex T. Smith:
"A clever story, but what really makes this pop are Smith's full-color illustrations, which depict each fantasy in thought bubbles crammed with hysterically funny details. Great for reading aloud or for savoring alone." -- "Booklist"
"Smith keeps the story zipping along, effectively using repeating phrases, story elements, and scenarios. The pages teem with digitized colors, textures, and photos, but the overall atmosphere is quiltlike and cozy. It's a persuasive argument for finding creative solutions to problems instead of walking away." -- "Publishers Weekly"
Praise for "Claude in the City" by Alex T. Smith:
"There's much to love in this resurrection of the cheerful city chronicle of the '60s." -- "Publishers Weekly"
